Dear Prime Minister,
Agriculture Bill presents a once in a generation opportunity to secure public goods for society
We wholly welcome the ambitious plans your Government has set out to reform agriculture policy, and overcome the flaws of the Common Agricultural Policy. Central to this ambition is your ground-breaking commitment to develop new farming and land management policies that provide public funds in return for public goods, such as
biodiversity, animal welfare and public access.
This summer is a defining moment for the future of our countryside, with drought highlighting the many shared challenges wildlife and farmers face. An ambitious Agriculture Bill that works for the environment, public health and animal welfare, and helps create a farming sector fit for the future, will be crucial if we are to meet these challenges in the years ahead.
